Astronomy from the Outback: The Murchison Widefield Array

July 26, 2017 @ 12:15 pm - 12:45 pm

Speaker: David Kaplan

I will describe the design, construction, and operation of the Murchison Widefield Array – a new radio telescope located in the middle of nowhere in Western Australia, far from any radio transmitters. Over the last 4 years the MWA has observed everything from our Earth’s atmosphere to galaxies billions of lightyears away, and I will talk about what we have learned and how we are working to design the next generation telescope.
